Over the past six weeks I’ve been traveling and painting in some amazing places across the Rockies, Great Lakes, and New England. It’s been a whirlwind tour and I’m excited to share some photos from the field. There are quite a few new paintings and some good stories to share, so this will have to be spaced out over the next few posts. Stay tuned for more summer updates to follow.
For July 4th, I took a trip with my family to Aspen, Colorado. It felt so good to be out in the Rockies again! Ever since my years spent traveling and living out west, Colorado has had a special place in my heart. Early morning trail runs through Aspen groves and fields of wildflowers … there’s nothing quite like it. The days were hot and I sought refuge along Hunter Creek in the mountains above town. I became fascinated by the challenge of painting the elusive qualities of moving water… a theme that captured my imagination everywhere I went on my travels this year.
After Aspen, I had a 24 hour transition in NYC before jetting off to Jackson, NH for the Hudson River Fellowship. This was my 5th summer as a fellow at this wonderful retreat, where I spent 4 days painting before my next adventure in northern Michigan as a resident artist on Rabbit Island. More on that experience in my next post! For now, here are a few paintings from my time at the Fellowship:
- And with this I leave you, a parting shot. Until next time!
